Al- Nusra, simply a faction of al-Qaeda at war with the Syrian government. Known for being the real culprits for chemical attacks on Syrian civilians. Launched rocket strikes on the Russian Embassy in Damascus. The rockets were likely those supplied by U.S. forces a year ago to the decimated moderate rebels. Al-Nusra Chief Abu Mohamed al-Jolani had just called for attacks on Russian civilians and soldiers.
The shells interrupted a demonstration of supporters for Putin and Assad. No injuries were reported. In the previous 24 hours, The Russian Air Force had made 88 Sorties hitting 86 Islamic State targets. Jolani called on the “heroic Mujahideen” in the Caucuses to attack Russians. He also offered a bounty for “whoever kills Bashar al-Assad and ends his story, even if he is of his own people and family.”
In addition, he offered a reward for the assassination of Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of Hezbollah in Lebanon. While Russia bombs the anti Assad forces, Washington continues to fabricate the existence of a moderate rebel army, even brandishing the illusion of rebels with an airdrop of weapons and Toyota trucks. According to Public Radio International, “…when the US State Department resumed sending non-lethal aid to Syrian rebels, the delivery list included 43 Toyota trucks.
Hiluxes were on the Free Syrian Army’s wish list. Oubai Shahbander, a Washington-based advisor to the Syrian National Coalition, is a fan of the truck.
“Specific equipment like the Toyota Hiluxes are what we refer to as force enablers for the moderate opposition forces on the ground,” he adds. Shahbander says the US-supplied pickups will be delivering troops and supplies into battle. Some of the fleet will even become battlefield weapons.”
Meanwhile, the regional chaos festers as Israel continues to attack Syrian targets in the Golan. “In response to the rocket fire, IDF artillery targeted two military posts of the Syrian Armed Forces in the central Syrian Golan Heights,” an Israeli army statement said on Tuesday.
President Obama is smack dab in the middle of a proxy regional war that could escalate at any moment, as our supposed enemy ISIS, utilizes and leaves a trail of evidence of treasonous U.S. battle supplies in the wake of Putin’s unyielding assault on anti Assad forces.
